Now that you are more familiar with systemic enzyme therapy and its numerous benefits, it’s time to talk about dosage.
As we have said in several of our earlier articles, there is no known side effects associated with systemic enzyme therapy — assuming that you do not currently suffer from a bleeding disorder or are on a blood thinning medication. It is not uncommon for doctors to place patients on as many as 10 systemic enzyme capsules 3 times a day. Of course, those patients generally tend to suffer from serious and painful diseases or conditions, and more often than not their doses are dramatically reduced within a few weeks.
With that being said, how many capsules should you take if you don’t suffer from a serious disease or condition? Well, reading the recommended dosage found on the label of a particular product is usually a good starting point. Because “blends” differ from one another, you will find that the recommended dosages also vary.
According to Dr. William Wong, a strong advocate for systemic enzyme therapy and a trustworthy source on this topic, the typical dosage for encapsulated systemic enzyme blends is 3 capsules 3 times a day. Keep in mind, however, that some people react more to systemic enzyme blends than others, while some react less. This is why if no benefits are felt after 3 days he recommends people to start increasing the dosage to 4 capsules 3 times a day. If no benefits are still felt after increasing the dosage, he recommends taking 5 capsules 3 times a day, and on and on until people can confidently say that their condition has improved.
Tableted systemic enzymes, on the other hand, generally require bigger dosages to be effective. 5 tablets 3 times a day is usually what people start with, but it is not uncommon for people to increase their dosage to as many as 80 tablets a day!
